Looking forward to showing our little stream to the RHS In Bloom Judge on 13th July. If you’d like to come along we’re meeting at the top of Napleton Road at 9.30am.
The next Westbrook Stream Clear will be: Saturday, 30th May, 2 – 4pm, meeting at the green space opposite Stonebridge Lodge (Curtis Way/West Street)
As there are still lots of nests about, we will concentrate on works on the banks, particularly tackling the weeping sedge seeds.
If you can come along on the day, please bring strong gloves and shoes (waterproof if possible ) and secateurs, loppers, nets , wheelbarrow etc if you have them. Please name any equipment you bring.
Looking forward to seeing you there…

From The Canterbury Times A GROUP set up to help clean Faversham’s waterways has launched a punt made by local people seeking work. The Friends of Westbrook and Stonebridge Pond was set up in October 2013 in order to clear the water of litter. It has continued to expand since then and last year received grants from councillors to help with removing large items and trees. As part of an unemployment scheme in Faversham, a two-man punt was built with the help of boat-builder Alan Thorne in the Purifier Building.

A FAVERSHAM volunteer says the water in Westbrook Stream is “running freely for the first time in a long time” after more than a year of hard work.
Mum-of-two Anna Stonor began organising group stream cleans last year and now regularly has at least 20 people helping out.
Despite the cold weather around 30 volunteers turned up at the last clean on Sunday, November 16.
